To register as a Volunteer

linux.conf.au is a grass-roots, community-driven event. It needs bright, enthusiastic people - like you - to make it a success!

Volunteering at linux.conf.au 2016 is a great opportunity, and can be deeply rewarding. On a more practical note, volunteering at linux.conf.au can add to your professional portfolio in many ways - making this an ideal opportunity for students or recent graduates.

  • Meeting exceptional people - many of whom are recognised experts in their field and industry luminaries
  • Great networking opportunities with people working in the free and open source community
  • Gaining practical, hands-on experience and skills in event management, customer liaison, public relations and operation of audio visual equipment - which are invaluable to future employers

What to bring to linux.conf.au

  • Laptop, phone, camera, chargers etc - most people bring a laptop, tablet etc. Free WiFi is available. Many Delegates enjoy hacking, coding and developing together at linux.conf.au.
  • Sunscreen, sunglasses and a water bottle - Geelong, although coastal, can have high summer temperatures. The conference venue is a block from the beach, feel free to bring swimming gear.
  • Clothes and toiletries - the conference venue is a block away from a Westfield shopping centre, so you'll be OK if you forget anything. Remember to bring any medication you may need.
  • Identification and if international, your passport - for registration purposes, we may need to see identification, and if you're a student, we'll need to see your student card. Geelong has plenty of beer, and in accordance with liquor laws, you may be asked for ID to be served alcohol.
  • Cash or card - you will likely have some incidental expenses during the conference. There's an ATM (Westpac) at the conference venue, and most nearby venues take card.
  • An appetite - Geelong has a magnificent range of eateries and restaurants all within walking distance.
